New Qubes user! First install today.

"Qubes-R4.0-x86_64.iso" (DD image) is installed.
Downloaded today (2nd October 2018) 

During the install during options for TemplateVMs, Sys-usb, etc. following 
error appeared: 


[Dom 0] Error
['/usr/bin/qubes-prefs','default-kernel','4.14.18-1'] failed:
stderr: "Traceback (most recent call last):

When I press OK, I can finish the setup and boot in Qubes OS. BUT there is no 
sys-net, sys-usb or any TemplateVMs. 

I then used the command "sudo journalctl" in terminal

Results (red text):

"tpm tpm0: A TPM error (6) occurred attempting to read pcr value"

### in white (TPM is disabled/deactivated (0x6))

"TDB: tdb_open_ex: could not open file /var/lib/xenstored/tdb: No such file or 
"Checking store ..."
"Checking store complete."

"Failed to start Qubes OS daemon."

Some ACPI errors

Failed to find module 'uinput'

I have been searching GitHub and Reddit. This could be similar. 


If it is the same problem, why do I get it when I haven't used R3.2? remains 
from a previous owner? And what do I need to do to fix it?
